Photosynthesis: Equation: 6 CO 2 + 6 H 2 O 1 C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6 O 2 Who can do Photosynthesis? - Chloroplasts: (Aside: have their own genome) - Very similar to mitochondria o Porus Outer-membrane, Inter-membrane Space, Inner-membrane, Impermeable to most molecules. - Inner-Membrane: Encloses the Stroma o Stroma where dark reactions occur; where enzymes that use NADPH + ATP to covert CO 2 to Carbs are found; Where Thylakoids are found. o Thylakoids Flat “Disk Like” membranes: a stack of them together forms what is called a “Granum” Two stacks of thylakoids (or “grana”) are linked by the Stroma lamellae The inside of a thylakoid is the thylakoid space. The outside of a thylakoid is the thylakoid membrane At the thylakoid membrane: o Redox rxns occur that generate a proton gradient(just like the cristae of mitochondria) o Light energy(photons) are harvested for use in the light rxns. Overall: The light absorbing pigments, the rxn centers, e - transport chain and ATP synthase are all in the thylakoid membrane Two main types of Reactions in the Chloroplast: Light Rxns & Dark Rxns
